BEGIN TEXT

19 Aug. 2009

Press Release: (2009) 119

Statement by the NATO Secretary General, Anders Fogh
Rasmussen, on the terrorist attacks in Baghdad

On behalf of NATO, I condemn in the strongest possible terms
the terrorist attacks in Baghdad today. I would like to
express NATO's sincere condolences to the Iraqi government,
the Iraqi people and to the families and loved ones of the
victims of these bloody attacks. This tragic loss of life
and suffering underscore, yet again, the grave danger the
terrorist threat poses to all of us.

There can be no justification for such cowardly and pointless
attacks. NATO will continue to work with Iraq in training
the Iraqi security forces and to cooperate in the fight
against the scourge of terrorism.
